I'm looking for a compression tool (lzma, gzip, zip et al) with the
following characteristics:

1. high compression ratio
2. multiple files per archive
3. very fast decompression/extraction of single files

One of the best from the compression rate point of view is 7z (well, I
know it depends on the type of files you are compressing). It
definitely satisfies 2. No idea about 3, but worth trying.
